  • April 07, 2011 Violin Primer for Beginning Instruciton

    I tried many different methods with my son (he's six)--suzuki, etc. and nothing excited him. He wanted music books like the older kids. This has been great for him. It begins instruction on the E and A strings which are easier for the beginner to play on and...

    he's really improving.

  • November 10, 2003 Beginner's Guide

    It's a great book for beginners such as myself who never played a violin. I wanted to learn a new instrument though I play the Organ..notes are not a problem but I wanted to start from the very beginning learning how to hold the violin and bow properly...

    which this book was a great help. It's a great help for those who need to learn to read notes as well. Learning the fingering for first position notes with the extensive illustrations are excellent! In just two weeks since I received the violin as a gift, I see myself already progressing quickly. Thank You!

  • July 02, 2003 A great book for the young beginner

    This book is easy-to-read, wonderful for a student who has had no prior musical training. Since it is a short book, it is great for a young child to have a sense of accomplishment!
